Explore a History Shaped by Nature
The Lighthouse is going dark… but with your help, we will re-light it sooner
For the entire month of May the Jupiter Light will go dark as we repair the roof, gallery deck and handrails, and also damage to the paint caused by Hurricane Matthew. Scaffolding will be rigged and the lens will be encapsulated with a wooden structure to keep it safe.
The Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum, a 501 (c)3 non-profit, to date has raised over $100,000, however we need to raise an additional $50,000 and we’re asking for support from our community.
Give some TLC today to the Jupiter Light.
